Republic of The Philippines CAR PART 6 Approved Maintenance Organizations – Initial – 2 Days


The Republic of the Philippine’s civil aviation regulations were initially introduced into law by Legislative Act No. 3909 on November 20, 1931.

Over the years numerous civil aviation laws were established and on April 4, 1987, Executive Order No. 125 created the Air Transportation Office (ATO) headed by the Assistant Secretary of Air Transportation.

On March 4, 2008, Republic Act No. 9497 renamed the ATO to the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) headed by the Director General of Civil Aviation tasked with establishing and prescribing rules and regulations for the inspection and registration of all aircraft owned and operated in the Philippines and the corresponding rules and regulations for the enforcement of laws governing air transportation.

In 2009 and 2010 audits carried out by ICAO and EASA (respectively) identified a portion of the Philippine Civil Aviation Regulations (CAR) as being out of date, including Part V Airworthiness and Part VI Approved Maintenance Organizations. Henceforth, in 2011 the CAAP revised the CAR to comply with FAA/ICAO/EASA standards.

CAR Part 6 Approved Maintenance Organizations provides regulations for the registration and monitoring of Approved Maintenance Organizations (AMO) in the Republic of the Philippines. For example, the housing and facilities requirements in Para. 6.3 are designed to keep maintenance personnel safe and provide a safe working environment, while Para. 6.5 ‘AMO Operating Rules’ result in a safe aircraft that can be used by flight crews to provide a safe and efficient mode of transportation.

In the Republic of the Philippines, persons must be individually licensed in accordance with Part 2 ‘Personnel Licensing’ to perform any maintenance task and to sign the maintenance release to return to service any aircraft or component. A holder of an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) must use the services from an AMO with the appropriate ratings.

This training course describes in detail all elements of CAR Part 6 rules and their relationship to Part 2 and Part 5 ‘Airworthiness’, as well as identifying differences to U.S. 14 CFR Part 145 Repair Stations and EASA Part-145 Approved Maintenance Organisations.
